In the meantime we moved back to the city to take over the care of my autistic son who lost his home when his dad died and that's a long story. We've been back for a little less than three years. I'm happy having the grandkids near, and when the covid fear is over, I have to see more of them because they're a better cure for depression than the drugs that make me forgetful and sleepy.

I'm sure I don't need to talk about covid fatigue, and the loneliness of lockdown. At least I have an argumentative autistic middle-aged man living in the garden cottage to keep me on my feet, and who picks me up when I trip over them, smashing up my face into the bricks. Old age isn't fun - but the alternative is worse they tell me. I'm back dipping my toes in - it is nice to be welcomed back, and I have to admit I've missed this place.

One of the inadequacies of online written communication is the inability to show that you're interested without having anything productive to actually write in reply... so this is my awkward attempt at writing a sentence to do just that.
